    Provenance: Chandigarh India, Each item we sell is hand picked and sourced directly from our trusted partners in Chandigarh whom we have been working with for many years, we only buy unrestored original items and only after we have thoroughly inspected and carried out our own checks to validate the authenticity of each piece in order to guarantee the item is an original.

    Once we have purchased the items they are lightly restored in order to maintain their originality, character and patina, the only elements that will be renewed and replaced will be the cane work, there will always be new cushions or upholstery, you are buying an original piece of furniture that will have minor flaws and show signs of age as is to be expected.

    For your comfort we will supply a certificate of authenticity and whenever possible also supply archival images of your items in a pre restored state showing age, condition and history, this is vitally important as the market is riddled with remakes or copies.
